Hello! Lauren here on the blog today sharing an alternative way to use the new Rainbow Stitch die set. I used the set to create a fun rainbow shaker card!
I started out by die cutting the rainbow into a 5×7 white cardstock panel. I used a cloud stencil from my stash to ink blend clouds all over the front of the panel in Speckled Egg Distress Oxide ink.
Next, I flipped the panel over and adhered clear acetate over the rainbow. I created the separate shaker areas by placing thin double sided foam tape in between. Then I added double sided foam tape around the rest of the rainbow leaving no gaps for the sequins to escape from.
Then I added foam tape to cover the rest of the panel. I filled each well with different colored sequins. Next, I removed the red backer paper from the tape and carefully placed my 5×7 white card base over top making sure to line it up well.
With the shaker created, I die cut some white clouds using a die from my stash. I adhered the clouds onto white cardstock and adhered it to the bottom of the rainbow overlapping it a little.
Next, I die cut the word Congrats three times, using both the upper and lower case Heather Alphabet set. I adhered the three layers together to give the word some dimension. Then I adhered the letters above the rainbow using a t-ruler to make sure the word was straight.
The last step was to create the “You did it!” sentiment on my computer. I printed it onto white cardstock then die cut it out. I also added 2 more die cut layers so that it matched the height of the “congrats”. I adhered it to the bottom center to complete the card.
I had so much fun thinking outside the box to create this shaker card. I hope it gives you some ideas on how you can get more looks from your die sets. Thanks for visiting and happy crafting!
